    Is there a reason why some international originals have black eyelets on the belt and collar, while others have the copper? (Jcrew vs. nordstrom shown here)

    I had a size question about the Commander jacket. I can wear a large McQueen Washington jacket, but wouldn't want to go much smaller. Would a large in the commander work? Thanks.

    I wear a 40 in the international, which is slightly big on me but, ok to layer in winter. And wear a large snugly in the original to Tokito.

    Just a heads up - Barbour by David Wood is running a promotion store wide (classics not included) for 30% off. lots of shirts, sweaters, and seasonal jackets!

    Black International or Navy bedale for my next jacket...I have a sage bedale now and love it but I would like to size down with the next jacket to have a more trim fit.

    Why not go with an ashby. It will get you the look of a bedale with a trimmer fit.

    Thanks for the input, ill go into barbour in the next few weeks to try stuff on. Im pretty sure newbury has all 3 jackets.

    Then it will just be a matter of hunting online for the best price.

    Any opinions on zip liners for Beauforts/Bedales? Are they worth the cost?

    I bought mine late in season, so did not get to wear that much before it got warm. Undecided on whether it was worth it. I definitely would not pay full price for one. Check ebay for used/new ones.

    I thought about getting one but didnt. I wore my bedale pretty much every day in the winter unless it was in the single didgets and was fine without it.
